For example. JIMMY JOHNS Downtown refuses to deliver to "BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS" on the east side of the penninsula. Even though it is more than willing to go even further than that for its deliveries to the "west side" of the penninsula near comfort inn right next to the VA HOSPITAL. Yet BLACKS CONTINUE TO POUR THEIR MONEY INTO JIMMY JOHNS ON GEORGE STREET>. Ok so we are allowing Jimmy johns to tell all the people on the east side they are too poor and black to get a delivery? I KNOW ITS RACISM. Does Jimmy johns advertise in city paper?
They must give city paper alot of money to keep quite on this. Maybe they bring you guys your lunch for free. Why do you not tell people about this>? Ohh thats right your too busy congratulating yourselves with pats on the back for marching. lol
20,000 copies at a printing press is pretty easy and cheap to get done. I know i can take your paper. What would people who gave their blood sweat and tears to your company think (like Jim the beloved CP employee who just recently passed away) to see that it just became another FOX NEWS? You should be ashamed of yourselves for ruining something you did nothing to help build. Maybe instead of censoring me you should let people argue with me in these rooms if they are offended. Maybe then people would interact with your city paper more. Ohh thats right you are turning it into one big advertisement for the strip clubs, and got too busy to do your jobs as journalists and promotors of free speech. What is this facebook? I quit FACEBOOK 9 years ago for the same reason! Now im all about GOOGLE+! Google planet will bury your business and teach people to hate your worthless advertisement you call "feel good news"
What i mean is i have decided to start my own newspaper with my small fortune. I think i am going to call it charleston shitty paper because it wont be a politically correct advertisement for restaurants. It will allow us to be "shitty" in speech like our forefathers promised us. It will allow us our true freedom of speech. LOOK FOR ADVERTS FOR MY STAFF SOON on craigslist.
You guys have some awesome writers like chris haire and mat catastrophe, but i realize they are probably even more censored than me when im simply in the comments section.
Even with these AWESOME writers I still think I can take your shitty company as a whole. Maybe one day i will even hire them away from you with a payraise!
The blotter during lunch is the only reason people even open your crap paper to begin with
We need a real paper that isn't afraid to tell the truth! CP IS more concerned with AD REVENUE
I've only had breakfast here, but it was almost as good as waffle house and just 3 times more expensive
Then you censure me and not let my write about media monopolies destroying the fabric of our culture by putting out RACIST JOKES, ok well Ill EXPRESS MYSELF in your faces on king street or your little SHITTY PAPER OFFICE BUILDING ON EAST BAY STREET you little worthless human beings.
ILL see ya!
GOD IS GREATER! THIS COUNTRY WILL BE DESTROYED BY MORAL ROT BROUGHT TO YOU BY VIACOM IN A FEW SHORT YEARS ANYWAYS> First they give you the fruit loops...then the aderal... then they grow up so fast into other drugs don't they? Yall are swinging in the dark and don't even know your real enemy.
I like Morgan Freeman's solution to racial division.
Im sorry if i am a little ANGRY about this. While i am not going to make this horrible tragedy about myself, i was a block away when it happened before the cops arrived and heard the gunshots.
It makes me angry too.
I dont care if cocaine or drugs/violence has been a part of our culture in the past. The point is they are educating us with big media so it remains in our future.
WELL NOT IN CHARLESTON> YOU DONT HAVE TO HAVE A MARCH TO PROVE THAT we are not collectively RACIST HERE,
EVERYWHERE HAS PROBLEMS WITH racism or ETHNIC DIFFERENCES, but i have usually met only the best people of all colors while living here working together as friends.
THAT's the traditional idea of what it means to be a free american. That's why everyone wants to move here! I love the people of my city. EVEN those billion dollar corporations and their clowns couldn't lie and throw us back 80 years.
i am proud that charleston isnt in reality what john stewart and viacom tried to make us out to be. hateful racists. CHARLESTON SHOULD NOW SEE THE BIG FOUR MEDIA monopolies AS THE REAL ENEMY NOW.
I enjoyed this article until the last couple of paragraphs.
"For decades blacks have been pushed out of their homes and neighborhoods so property that was once owned by blacks is now owned by whites" is just a malicious way of saying black people sold their homes to white people.
And "Koreans have Koreatowns, Chinese people have their areas. Same for Jewish people and Italians. No reason we couldn't do the same. It's just going to take us coming together to make it happen" sounds an awful lot like an endorsement for returning to segregation.
Very cool! Didn't know that history and gives me much respect for those trying to recreate that success like chef BJ Dennis!
In response to comment #1:
Describing nuclear as "dirty" is demonstrably false. US nuclear power has not caused a single public death and has never had any impact on public health. It also has negligible CO2 emissions.
Scientific studies which estimate the overall health and environmental impacts of various energy sources (e.g., www.externe.info/) actually show that nuclear's impacts are even less than solar's, although both are negligible compared to fossil fuels.
All energy sources have some net CO2 emissions (after accounting for all parts of the generation process), but nuclear's net CO2 emissions are negligible compared to fossil fuels, and similar to renewables. Lower than solar, in fact, and similar to wind. From the IPCC itself:
Solar is more expensive than nuclear, and doesn't generate power ~75% of the time. (With the necessary energy storage, it would be FAR more expensive.) In reality, we should do both (nuclear and solar). They compliment each other well. Any renewable generation should be used to replace fossil fuels, not nuclear.
Santa Fe raised the minimum wage to 10.51 and that only applies to county workers. If restaurants do that, expect a burger and fries to cost you $30. But thats only if there are any restaurants still in business
zee, please shut up.
REMEMBER GI JOE? PAID FOR BY LOCKHEED MARTIN! WAYANS BROTHERS APPROVED< WELL NOW THEY ARE BETTER AT HIDING THE BRAINWASHING< AND THEY USE KARDASHIANS AND "POSITIVE" RACIST STEREOTYPES TO PROMOTE RACISM WITH HUMOR ON COMEDY CENTRAL.
OUR GOVERNMENT DOESN'T CARE ABOUT US OR OUR RIGHTS AS PEOPLE> WE NEED A REVOLUTION AND WE NEED TO AMMEND OUR GOVERNMENT before corporate pigs destroy it completely and turn us into slaves in coal mines again like in WEST VIRGINIA.
All avoided the pressing question. Consider that we are a foodie town, much of our tourism is food driven, ergo, many of our jobs are in the food industry. Yet even in the better restaurants, 12 an hour is top pay. Many start COOKS at $7.15 an hour. And cooks generally do not get 40 hrs a week. Even if "affordable" housing were 600 a month, it is still out of reach for 9.00 an hr. And good luck finding that.
These people want you to believe that there will be a build out of thousands of homes, with reasonable rents....RIGHT !! We are similar to Santa Fe, they raised the min. wage to 15.00, and the restaurants still prosper. Time for the 99% to get pissed off, and change things !
Let's see, SCE&G has a government sponsored monopoly, not always the best customer service, is not necessarily on the cutting edge of energy technology, isn't overly worried about efficiency, does whatever it can to self perpetuate and has the ability to change (that means raise) whenever it feels like it. Yeah, let's do the same thing with healthcare.
Wow, how come this middle aged white chic knows about an incredible event happening in Charleston while the other commenters just point fingers? There are over 70 organizations coming together for Charleston's Days of Grace... a march, rally and conference over Labor Day weekend to work on race relations and all that encompasses. Its like our President said "It would be a betrayal of everything Reverend Pinckney stood for, I believe, if we allowed ourselves to slip into a comfortable silence again." Come out and be a part of the change. I promise it will be a lot more enriching than just pointing those fingers all day.
I'd agree, since the Windjammer posted a photo of DR's giant semi parked in front of it this morning. :)
The only "privilege" we are "privy" to, is that we don't develop criminal records four miles long by the time we hit 18. Take accountability for yourselves, teach your young people not to break the law and to be good citizens. Yes, years of STATISTICS will be hard to overcome, but if you try, it will happen.
